policy and with former cia director michael hayden. later, a look at u.s. fiscal policy, taxes, and the european debt crisis. first, a portion of the discussion on the differences between osama bin laden and the new head of al qaeda. >> that i could ask the panelists briefly to give a report card about how you feel he has conducted himself over the last year or so since bin laden's death? is there anyone within the ranks who could step up and have the kind of stature to command respect among them today? thank you. >> i would say i give him an a-. the reason is because i think he has a very different view than bin laden did. he had this exhaustion attrition strategy when it came to the united states and the west. he has continued that to a certain extent. he has very much switched the inus to building affiliate's other countries and to increase the strength of al qaeda in africa, the middle east, and elsewhere. the has been very successful at it. here is the one thing about him that has me on a knife's edge. if he were really smart, he would never attack the united states again.
think widely more people recognize that it is because of his links and works with the cia. in this interview he says he is very proud that he worked with the cia and he would do what all again, even though, as he said, he suffered a great deal of torture. he has been bound for many months in prison since the pakistani intelligence agencies got a hold of him. >> what he says is one thing, what they isi is another, but you say it is almost a common held view that americans are pretty much the worst of the mall but the moment. what does it mean for the billions of dollars that are still funneled into pakistan from washington? >> of course, it has great implications but the relationship and also the conflict across the border in afghanistan. but this is always the key question -- pakistani authorities have always said that any country in the world would deal with a citizen in that way if it were found a citizen was giving the information to a foreign spy agency. in this case, of course, talking about the foreign spy agency in the form of a seat -- the cia, someone with home pa

, paul was kicking this idea around, but people said, no, and that was it. that is ia lie. the cia actually had to go back and put together an entire brief saying, no, we are not being fooled, this is real, let's have -- it is going to the president of the u.s.. there is a debate playing out to the president of the nine states june 29 of 2001 about whether these warnings are even worth listening to. it is a very serious -- >> who else heard the briefings apart from the president? >> it would have gone to the vice president. there are two levels of briefings. there are the presidential daily briefs, and a second level down call the seib. that gets around a broader group of people. elements of what are in the presidential daily breves are also in the seib. so i can say some elements of what i am saying were among the whole national security, a senior advisory group within the bush demonstration. >> this is a clip of the secretary of state condoleezza rice testifying in a hearing before the 9/11 commission about the attacks. >> there was no silver bullet that could have prevented the

bronze star and 25 years of field experience. worked closely with the cia, dod. 50 marines is that enough? >> i was arriving at the train station when they announced it. are you kidding me? this is where we need to be clear. 50 marines is like so what. we have to be sending the message we are deadly serious about security of our personnel overseas. that was laughable. there have been several discussions about this. the president should have basically said we should have done everything necessary to defend our equities our personnel. i love the marines don't get me wrong but they are not going to make an effect. the whole idea is not sufficient. >> we are talking about hundreds of pro tests storming. >> we see yemen coming up. we should have been trying to get everything in place. what happened with the 9-11 build up. we should have prepared for this. 9-11 anniversary we have additional resources available. we didn't do that. >> where was the security? how can you explain the bams dorr's family? >> one of the thing former intelligence case officer is people like me should be outside of the
-11 was this effort to essentially blame the c.i.a. blame the counter terrorists center. that is at the epicenter of all of the intelligence agencies' efforts against al-qaeda and the rest. and say well, they didn't give us enough information. they could have done this. they could have done that. these people have suffered in silence for 11 years because they had to. and the truth of the matter is they fed so much information to the white house, they were there day in and day out saying there's an attack coming. there's an attack coming. then having to fight off the pentagon, this insane theory that bin laden was acting as a front for saddam hussein. >> eliot: two of them did not get along ideologically totally different. >> it was a fundamentalist and secularist. they had nothing to do with each other. these people -- today i got -- i was contacted a couple of times by people in the intelligence community. one of them, his first words were bless you. the other one the man was in tears and said he can --

warning the white house that the cia had been fooled. according to this theory, bin laden was planning an attack to distract them from saddam hussein who they saw as a greater threat. intelligence officials protested the idea of bin laden conspireing with mr. hussein saying it was ridiculous. the neoconservative suspicions were carrying the day. the cia prepared an analysis to accept the danger from bin laden was real. that exert in the new york times. he'll join us on "morning joe" to talk about this piece and his book, "500 days." we'll ask how he came across this and how it stacked up against other terror warnings that came across the president's desk at that time. >>> we were reminded on the eveover 9/11 that terrorist continues. al qaeda's number two leader in yemen was killed in an air strike. saeed al-shiri died when their vehicle was hit by a missile. he was in prison for six years at guantanamo bay. he was involved in the failed underwear bomb plot on christmas day. the violence raged. four rockets destroyed a nato helicopter. three afghan personnel were killed and nato troops
the problem here was the cia. they didn't give us information to act. and i can tell you that's an allegation that has tormented the people who were involved in developing that intelligence because they are basically being told for 11 years you're responsible for the people who died. and it's a lie. you know, having seen what's there, the cia, the people in the counter terrorist center and other intelligence people around the government were banging the drum, were saying over and over again, we have an attack coming. and you know, there have been every level of duplicity in terms of dealing with that. i shouldn't just keep going, but the very horrifying thing that shocked everybody, the august 6th bin laden determined to strike u.s., that in and of itself was a red herring because that went out there and condoleeza rice testified before the 9/11 commission this is a historical document, which it was. if you read it carefully, it was a historical document. this is what bin laden is like and he's determined to strike the u.s. but if we had anything to suggest that there was a strike that was im
